Borussia Dortmund Form

In the German Bundesliga, Bosz’s side have won six, drawn two and lost three of their opening 11 fixtures. After starting the season in strong fashion, Borussia’s momentum has slowed up in recent weeks, winning just one – which was a victory over minnows Magdeburg in the German Cup last month – of their last seven in all competitions.

Dortmund have been very poor in the Champions league up until now, picking up just two points from a possible 12. The German giants have lost to Tottenham and Real Madrid, and drawn twice with APOEL. If they don’t beat Spurs on Tuesday, the best they can hope for is a UEFA Europa League place.

Tottenham Hotspur Form

In contrast to Dortmund’s poor form, Tottenham have been outstanding in the Champions League this season. Spurs have never looked back since opening up with a comfortable 3-1 win over BVB at Wembley Stadium in September. Last time out in Europe, the Lilywhites sealed an unforgettable 3-1 home triumph over Madrid to book a place in the knockouts.

Spurs are also going great guns in the Premier League at present, sitting joint second with Manchester United on 23 points from 11 games. Can Pochettino’s boys take a giant leap towards winning their Champions League group with three points in Germany on Tuesday?

Head to Head Stats

The Londoners were outstanding when these two squared off at Wembley in September. A smart brace by Harry Kane and an early strike by Son Heung-min were enough to get Spurs off to a flying start in Group H.

The two also met in the Europa League back in March 2016, with Dortmund going on to win both games. At the Signal Iduna Park, goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marco Reus (2) secured a comfortable 3-0 win. In the second leg, BVB won 2-1 at White Hart Lane to go through to the quarter-finals.

Injuries & Suspensions

Dortmund could be without the likes of Alexander Isak, Eric Durm and Lukasz Piszczek, who are all doubts for this one. Sebastian Rode and Marco Reus will miss out for the hosts. Tottenham will be sweating on the fitness of Jan Vertonghen while Victor Wanyama is likely to miss out. Spurs will certainly be without Toby Alderweireld, though, as the defender recovers from a hamstring problem.

Borussia Dortmund

  • Alexander Isak - Forward a doubt with a knee injury
  • Eric Durm - Could be with out with a hip injury
  • Lukasz Piszczek - Defender could miss out with a knee problem
  • Sebastian Rode - Side-lined with a groin strain

Betting Tips

Despite the job being already done and dusted, Pochettino will not allow his players to take their foot off the gas. Tottenham have been impressive in Europe so far, and they will want their good form to continue as they enter the knockout stages. As for Dortmund, it’s win or bust for them. The German side may be the favourites, but beating an in-form Spurs team will be no easy task for Bosz’s men.


We feel that Tottenham are good enough to leave the Westfalenstadion with a point at the very least. After earning a memorable 1-1 draw in the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium last month, Spurs will fancy their chances of picking up a positive result anywhere in Europe. The draw is priced at 13/5.

Draw and Both Teams to Score

Tottenham have scored in all bar one game on the road this term thus far. Five of those seven games have ended in wins. Dortmund, meanwhile, have netted in all of their home games to this point. Check out the top price of 10/3 for the draw and both teams to score.

1-1 Draw

As for the correct score, have a punt on 6/1 for this to end in a 1-1 stalemate in Dortmund on Tuesday.
